by superstorm sandy just last year. by the time the storm is done some places could see up to 3 feet of snow. we go to our chief meteorologist bill martin who is tracking the nor'easter. >> this is a classic nor'easter. as it moves up the coast it's picking up powerful energy. you have the two systems merging. that's what a nor'easter is. you get the system moving up the coast. you get the one moving out of the cooler regions and they merge up. see how they're merging up right here. and all that energy is going to explode in the northeast especially in places like boston where they could see. it's moving into the future here. they could easily see 3 feet of snow. picture san francisco with three feet of snow. that's why they're shutting down the roadways. wind gusts up to 75 miles per hour. they'll have the real heavy snowfall. it's a real distant memory by sunday evening. tomorrow is the big show of this. to drop up to 3 feet of snow that's a problem. it's already causing flight delays. if you're flying to the east call ahead. even chicago, even dallas. we'll see you back here with your forecas
